Brief Bio
Ahmad Kamal AIJAZI is associated with the ISPR (ImageS, Perception systems and Robotics) research group at the Pascal Institute (UMR6602), a joint research unit of CNRS (National Center for Scientific Research) and Blaise Pascal University of Clermont–Ferrand, France. He has been actively involved and has contributed in several French government projects related to urban environment perception for ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) applications and is currently doing research on new methods for 3D urban scene characterization and cartography using reconnaissance and temporal integration. His research interests include robotics, intelligent vehicles, machine vision, 3D urban cartography, multisensorial data fusion, 3D LiDAR and camera based perception.

Brief Bio
Paul CHECCHIN is Associate Professor (HDR) in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Industrial Data Processing at Blaise Pascal University. He is a member of the PerSyst research team ("Perception Systems"), which is part of the ISPR (ImageS, Perception systems and Robotics) department carrying on research in Computer Vision and Robotics, within the Pascal Institute (UMR6602 CNRS/UBP), a joint research unit of CNRS (The National Center for Scientific Research) and Blaise Pascal University. His main research interests focus on robot autonomy, localization, mapping, scene understanding and perception applied to Simultaneous Localization And Mapping (SLAM) of mobile robots, moving object tracking in extensive outdoor environments based on radar, LiDAR and visual sensors.

Brief Bio
Laurent TRASSOUDAINE is full Professor at the faculty of Sciences and Technology in Clermont-Ferrand University. He is a member of the "Perception Systems" research team which is part of the ISPR (ImageS, Perception systems and Robotics) department carrying on research in Computer Vision and Robotics, within the Pascal Institute (UMR6602 CNRS/UBP), a joint research unit of CNRS (The National Center for Scientific Research) and Blaise Pascal University. After a long experience on data fusion for perception onboard intelligent vehicles, his main research interests are now focused on localization, mapping and SLAM.

SCOPE

Interpreting and extracting useful information from urban environments are gaining widespread interest among researchers. Besides urban landscape analysis and realistic modeling for applications like Google earth, Street map viewer, considerable research is undertaken, interpreting urban scenes for perception tasks related to autonomous vehicle navigation, driving assistance, search and rescue operations, security analysis and scene understanding. However, analyzing urban environments from aerial, space-borne and ground-based sensors remains a huge challenge due to varying conditions, handling large datasets acquired by increasingly accurate sensors and the presence of numerous natural and man-made objects including vegetation, roads, cars, buildings but also pedestrians. Although highly specialized, this topic unites scientific communities (e.g. GIS, Computer Science, Computer Vision and Robotics) exploring theories and applications related to sensors and data acquisition techniques, feature extraction, segmentation and classification, pattern recognition and analysis, mapping and modeling, etc.
